Get a glimpse: Elders React to playing Grand Theft Auto 5

Ever wonder what it'd be like if your grandparents played Rockstar Games' Grand Theft Auto 5? You don't have to wonder anymore, as the newest Elders React video shows us just that. Most of the elders in the video are familiar with the GTA franchise, but didn't have first-hand experience playing any of the game titles.

 

 

The React YouTube video channel has become popular for its videos showing how kids, teenagers, and older folks react to a number of different games, technologies, memes, and other popular Internet content.

The Witcher Battle Arena is a new mobile MOBA title, which is set within the universe of The Witcher. In the free-to-play MOBA game, gamers will battle it over a 3-on-3 game, but you can also play the singleplayer side of things which is available, too. Heroes within The Witcher Battle Arena will feature their own special, distinct abilities and skills that will allow players to find the characters that work best for their play style.

 

The developers have said that The Witcher Battle Arena is not a "pay-to-win" experience, as it is a fully free-to-play title. Gamers can unlock any of the purchasable in-game content through playing the game. The developer explains: "Everything in the game is unlockable for free, just by playing the game. Our system is honest, well balanced and doesn't keep you playing for ages to unlock something. If you want to get something unlocked faster, you can purchase it for a reasonable price. It's that simple".

On the cooperative side of things, this mode allows you to eradicate the Zombies with your friends, which will be pretty awesome to do.

Alien: Isolation has sold over 1 million copies, underwear not counted

SEGA and Creative Assembly have announced that Alien: Isolation is a success, selling over one million copies across the world. This might not keep up with the insane sales of the latest Call of Duty or Battlefield, but for a game like this, it's big news.

Horror games generally don't sell anywhere near as well as established franchises, especially first-person shooters like Call of Duty. But, Alien: Isolation has been received very well both with critics, and gamers. Let's hope we see the two team up for another outing in the Alien universe, cranking up the scares once again. Maybe with the launch of the Oculus Rift?

DirectX 12 will deliver up to 50% more performance in CPU-bound games

During its Windows 10 event, Microsoft teased so much that we've had to cover it in multiple stories, but one of the more PC centric talks was about DirectX 12.

DirectX 12 will ship with Windows 10 later this year, and will provide developers with more power and control over their games, which will provide them with the ability to give gamers more complex, and better performing games. Microsoft's Phil Spencer teased that DX12 will reduce the power consumption of DX11 by 50%, which will allow many more mid-range mobile devices to run "high-end" mobile games.

 

Spencer also announced that Unity has adopted DirectX 12, which is big news in itself. This will allow games like Fable Legends to use DX12 to work between Windows 10 and Xbox One owners, and even cross-platform play, which is super exciting.

The demo included the presenter playing Forza on the Surface, Microsoft's tablet, but the game was actually running on an Xbox console. This will allow the power of the console's graphics on small devices that would not be able to play the games.

Professional gaming group caught rigging $10,000 Counter-Strike match

eSports are on the rise worldwide, and competitive leagues are beginning to see problems that plagued traditional sports in the past. A recent Counter Strike: Global Offensive match organized by the CEVO gaming league was rigged, with the losing team placing over $10,000 dollars in bets that paid off if they lost.

The fixed match was apparent as it unfolded, members of the iBuyPower team were laughing as they were blown up by the other team and went for knife kills in an unusual fashion. The team chalked the loss up to jet lag and being unfamiliar with the map, but two pro members on the team spilled the beans on the match fixing.

 

Gambling on the matches is quite popular, and the betting site CS:GO Lounge did some digging to see if they could ferret out evidence of the thrown match. They confirmed that all nine accounts, which each placed the maximum bet, were all from a single user, or people on his Steam friends list. Every one of the bets won $1,200, for a total of $10,800.

Battlefield Hardline will reach the Xbox One first thanks to EA Access

Xbox One owners will get a four-day head start on Battlefield Hardline thanks to the preview program EA access offers, which should have owners of Microsoft's now current-gen console very happy.

The previews themselves are limited to just six hours of gameplay over the four days, but any of the save games and other files generated over that time will transfer over to the full release on March 17. The preview is free, but EA Access costs $5 per month, or $30 for the year.

 

Battlefield Hardline will launch on the PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One and PC on March 17. But before the full launch, we are to expect another open beta, which there are no specific dates for just yet.
